Celebrate Baltimore’s First Oktoberfest Kick-Off With Herr Fogleman at Crossbar

My friend is tapping the first keg at Baltimore’s first Oktoberfest this Saturday! If you are in the area, make sure to stop by and say hello to Herr Fogleman.

As a guy named Stephan Fogleman, I’ve done more than my share of Oktoberfests. Usually, I drive to Philly every year to attend Brauhaus Schmitz’ bacchanalia that closes down South Street. It would take something special to get me to give up a chance to hoist liters on the streets of the City of Brotherly Love.

We all know that Oktoberfest begins in September, so much so that I told Crossbar co-founder Brian McComas back in March that if he wanted me for a customer, he’d better set his Oktoberfest watch to Munich time. He was offended that I even suggested he might start Oktoberfest celebrations that weren’t in sync with Munich’s. I liked that he took it seriously enough to get mad, because Oktoberfest, like the Germans, is serious stuff. Serious fun!
